Amonte Picante


This is the best drink I’ve ever had.  It was so good I took a picture of it.



Ordered on recommendation of my favorite waiter at the Yew in The Four Seasons, my mouth is watering just thinking of it now.  It didn’t occur to me that I could actually make this myself.  Tomorrow is New Years Eve and although I’m still feeling rather poorly, I think I will try and make this.  I’ll sip it in my pajamas as I sit on the couch under a blanket.

Amonte Picante

2 slices- English cucumber (chopped and peeled)

2 sprigs- Cilantro

1 1/2 shot- Tequila

1 shot- Freshly squeezed lime juice

1/2 shot- Agave syrup

2 dash- Green tabasco sauce

Muddle the cucumber and cilantro, add the other ingredients and shake with ice.  Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with cucumber slices.
